Think you’ve seen it all? Prepare to say, “Woah.” Angel’s Care Collective in San Jose has developed quite a reputation for its exclusive strain The Wow, and that reputation is deserved. These gargantuan colas look enticingly lime green with an odd touch of purple leaves, brown hairs and a thick coat of trichomes. The smell also inspires awe: fruity, musky and complex. We didn’t get much information on The Wow’s lineage, but it doesn’t smell or look like an OG Kush or a Purple. This is a dense, sativa-dominant hybrid, like an AK-47 or a Pineapple or—yes!—Maui Wowie. We’d wager this is some killer phenotype of Maui Wowie! Grinding and smoking the flower elicits an even more tropical bouquet, and its effect mimics that island sativa: the energy, the mood lift, the less linear thought. Cannabinoids treat a long list of symptoms, but patients suffering from anxiety and depression reports relief using some hybrids. Wow, just wow.
